Students are reviewing cases to familiarize themselves with legal terminology regarding civil and criminal proceedings. Once cases are reviewed, students work with partners to identify evidence from both the plaintiff and the defendant. Students are asked to engage in a "debate" as they deliberate cases and render a verdict. In the upcoming weeks, students will decide what Mock Trial script from Law Adventures they would like to conduct in court. Once a case is selected, students will revamp the script to add evidence to the discovery of the case, as well as the questions that will be asked during cross-examination.
Students have decided to write a mock trial on an environmental issue to help raise awareness regarding the Indian White-Eye bird. This mock trial will be completely written and performed by students in Superior Court with the goal of changing policy. In addition, students will work on an individual passion project that will help raise awareness regarding sustainable efforts. Students will decide if they want to focus on changing a policy in their home, school, or local community.
Students are working on designing an Ellis Island Immigration Simulation for the entire third grade. Students conducted research on the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island and are now highlighting various aspects of both landmarks to incorporate into the simulation.
